Preserve your East Middle School memories with a painting of our iconic Westminster school, now available as ornaments and prints. Painted by Westminster local Stephanie Madsen, these can be ordered at www.lewwilsonart.com – just search under “Westminster”. Use the promo code WEMSMD and enter this code in the "Coupon Code" box when checking out (Westminster East Middle School Maryland) and 20% of your full order will be donated back to support our PTO. The ornaments are handmade and adhered to Balsa Wood. Personalization and shipping are free and all orders will be shipped directly to your home! We have attached a picture of the painting as well as what the coupon code area looks like to enter the code "WEMSMD".

This Thursday...3/31 3:30-8:00pm

Eat local & Support East Middle! 🥳


Mediterraneo Restaurant Night!
Thursday, 3/31 3:30-8:00pm
Eat local, support local!


Teacher Appreciation Week will be here in less than 2 months (May 2nd - May 6th) and we want to show our appreciation to our amazing East Middle staff! If you would like to help support our amazing staff with a well-deserved breakfast, lunch, and fun treats, we are asking for donations so that we can start planning for the week. Donations can be sent in electronically (see below), or in the form of gift cards. They can be sent on behalf of an individual, or as a group (please include individual names for group gifts). For example, last year, the WSA 2008 Boys Cyclones donated $200 in gift cards to Paradisio's. With this donation, 8 staff members each enjoyed a $25 gift card, while also supporting a well-loved local business! Also, the Central Carroll 2009 Girls Craze donated group gift cards too!

To show their appreciation of support throughout the year, our amazing staff has gotten together to offer fun experiences and items to say thank you! On Monday, April 11th (during each lunch shift), students will have the opportunity to enter tickets into a staff auction. EVERY student will receive 1 ticket, then students who have either sold chocolate boxes, already sent in money for the no hassle fundraisers, OR donates money or gift cards for Teacher Appreciation Week will receive an additional ticket for every $20 donated. The TEAM with the total combined donations will earn a social hour/extra recess outside at the end of the school day in April (with a special sweet treat to top it off)!

A few of the auction items include:

Pizza lunch for winner and lunch table
Chick-fil-a gift cards
Dunkin Donuts gift cards
Throw a pie in the face of one of their favorite teachers
Extra gym time for 2v2 basketball with friends
Time to shadow a teacher for a morning or afternoon
and much more!
To make a donation you may:

send through PayPal - [email protected] ​(please choose personal to avoid fees)
​send through Venmo - -PTO ​(please choose personal to avoid fees)
send in gift cards, cash, or a check made payable to East Middle PTO ​(your child may turn these in to their homeroom teacher)
We will update the totals in school as money comes in every Wednesday and Friday until it ends on Wednesday, April 6th with the winning team announced on Friday, April 8th.

As always, thank you so much for your support and if you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].

Thank you!
